5 Books that Should Be Made into Films/TV Shows

Image
Now I know that when people make books into movies, they screw them up most of the time. But I thought that it would fun to tell you guys five books that I would like to see made into movies or TV shows. But, these are books that I would want to be made WELL into movies or TV shows.

1. The Selection Series by Kiera Cass

I feel like this would be interesting as TV show. Like a Bachelor type situation but with a royal twist and badass rebels. I know that this was optioned for a TV show but it was never actually put into action. You can see that actual script that was written (it did not coincide with the books at all though) online, but I will say that it is definitely not decent for children.

2. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.

This seems like it would make an excellent movie. A chic flick no doubt, and it would bring in a lot of profit. It would be so emotional if done right.

3. Legend by Marie Lu

I also believe this would make a great movie and I also believe that this was optioned for a m…

So I had this idea since I could not choose what I wanted to read next. This is what I did...

I wrapped the five books that I wanted to read soon in wrapping paper and then I had someone choose for me one of the packages and the one that I opened, I had to read.

These are the books that were up for grabs.

Rook by Sharon Cameron Review *Mild Spoilers*

Short Summary:
Sophia Bellamy's family's finances is going under after the death of her mother and her father's awful grief. In a desperate attempt to keep the family house, Sophia is set up to marry a wealthy man she has never met, Rene Hasard. Meanwhile, the Red Rook, a hidden vigilantly, is breaking people out of prison who are sent to death by the Razor, and leaving a single black and red rook feather. When the search for the Red Rook comes to the Bellamy House by Rene's cousin, LeBlanc, things take a bad turn.

Okay guys. Let's talk. I was so confused during this book. It wasn't that it was bad, in fact, I loved the idea of it. I just believe that Cameron really didn't execute it as well as it could've been. There were a couple of parts that I had wondered in the time of reading them why they were included, because they just seemed to be taking up space, but they in fact did have a meaning later in the story. 

Now. Character…

Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins Review

This book was amazing. The only thing that I did not like about this book was the relationships between some of the characters. It made me angry what Harper did with her boyfriend. She just kind of threw him around and gave lame excuses. I wish that Hawkins would have handled that in a different sense but other than that, I liked the characters. 

With plot twist after plot twist it hit you like a bullet. You sat there in awe for a couple of seconds but then you just have to keep reading. The story was an action-packed masterpiece that I refused to put down. I thought that the fight scenes were well done. 

Surprisingly, I actually really like David. I hated Mary Beth, but then again, I think that you were actually supposed to. The characters had these great witty snarky comments that had me laughing throughout. I loved the southern feel of it too, it really gave me insight on what it would be like to be a teenage girl in the south and having to go …

Reading Update

Guys I am almost done with rereading The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares, I have like 80 pages left. And I got a little father into Rebel Belle! Loving Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins so far. At first I didn't like the main character but it makes sense of why she is the way she is.

Book reviews coming soon. Just not for Sisterhood because I was just rereading that for pleasure.

I know, I know. I don't like to read two books at a time, but I just really wanted to read the Traveling Pants. I'm not sure why, I just needed something cute after Legacy of Kings. Speaking of Legacy of Kings, I will have the review up as soon as possible.


Thanks,
See ya,
